Project Lead The Way (PLTW)

Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Progam Policy

Since Fall 2021: The University of Montana recognizes and awards credits for Project Lead The Way (PLTW) courses. Learn more about PLTW pathways/courses and assessments.

PLTW high school curricula are focused in three specific areas/pathways: Biomedical Sciences, Computer Science and Engineering. While efforts are underway to evaluate all three pathways, currently only selected courses within the Biomedical Sciences pathway are eligible for General Education and course equivalency credit.

General Education and course credit for the Biomedical Sciences courses is granted based upon successful completion of the course with assessment scores as described below. Enrollment Services-Admissions will provide students with an evaluation of their credits upon receipt of official scores. The University of Montana awards college credit to undergraduate degree students on the basis of official score reports from PLTW.
